Tips for Making the Best Keto Egg Custard

To make the best keto egg custard follow these tips.

Bring the Eggs to Room Temperature

Bringing the eggs to room temperature will help to ensure an even cooking time. Lucky for me, I store my eggs on the counter already since I raise my own chickens! Score!

Add a Pinch of Salt

Adding a pinch of salt to your recipe will help bring out the sweetness in the custard.

Do Not Overcook It

Overcooking the custard can cause it to taste eggy. If you want to avoid an eggy taste with your custard, avoid overcooking it.

How to Serve Custard

Custard can be served warm or cold, depending on your preference. You can top it with strawberries, fruit sauce, whipped cream or any toppings that you want.

What to Do with Leftover Keto Egg Custard

If you find yourself with leftover custard, (I know, it seems unlikely, but it could happen!), here are your options:

Refrigerate It

After the custard has cooled down, wrap your leftovers in plastic wrap and store the leftover custard in the fridge. Make sure that the plastic wrap is touching the top of the custard as the custard develops a film on top of it otherwise.

Do Not Freeze It

Unfortunately, custard is one thing that just doesn’t freeze well, so I don’t recommend it. Stick with keeping it refrigerated and enjoy it within the first few days.
